Octo-Mom Defends Decision To Go On Food Stamps

octomom-defends-deciscion-to-go-on-food-stamps.jpg

Ugh.

Octo-Mom has been under fire since she admitted that went on government assistance to help feed her 14 children.

The state offers $2,000 a month to large families who earn less than $119,000 a year, which is something she now defends.

Nadya Suleman says:

"I made that call reluctantly. I needed to remove my pride, it was fear. I was terrified and I received thousands and thousands of death threats. I still am [working] as hard as I can to support them.

In my mind I was doing well with the six and it's three books in itself to rationalize why I wanted one more after six. But who cares how I feel – it's about my children. They deserve the best. My family is my priority."

Her family should have been her priority before she decided to have more children. We're just sayin'.

The Heaviest Woman Alive Wants Help To Lose Weight

Filed under: Oprah WinfreySad SadDr. DrewFitnessObeseDr. Oz

Admitting you have a problem is the first step to solving it, so bravo!

Pauline Potter, recently crowned the heaviest woman alive by the Guinness World Records, wants to shed the weight that got her in the spotlight, but will need some help to do it.

She told Dr. Drew that even before she tipped the scales at 700 pounds to become the heaviest woman alive, she knew she needed a healthy change.

After writing to television personalities like Oprah, Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil only to never hear back, she decided to contact the Guinness World Records to share her story with the public in hopes of getting help she needs.

While we don't agree with relying on assistance from celebrities to lose weight, at least Pauline had a healthy goal in mind.

Check out her interview with Dr. Drew above to find out how she got so big and how her size impacts her quality of life.

We hope she finally gets in contact with somebody who can assist her with the weight loss journey that lies ahead.

For anyone else struggling with excessive weight, do not sit around and wait for the help you need. Get up and FIND IT!

Did Beyoncé Rip Off Her Run The World Choreography?!

Relax, everyone! These guys not only knew about it and gave their okay, but they appear in the video WITH her!

Check out the Mozambican kwaito dance group Tofo Tofo and their absolutely KICK-ASS moves, which ultimately served as inspiration for Beyoncé's choreography in her just-released video for Run The World (Girls) (above)!

While many assumed that the diva had just ripped these guys off, she actually discovered them on YouTube, and when she reached out to them to help out choreographers Frank Gatson and Sheryl Murakami with the moves for the video, they didn't even know who she was!

LOLz!

You can even spot them dancing alongside her in the clip! Check it out again…AFTER THE JUMP!

Phew! Glad that's cleared up!

What do U think?? Do U like B's new video?

Which Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills Castmember Called 911 For Charlie Sheen?

adrienne-maloof-and-husband-paul-nassif-call-911-for-charlie-sheen

We're not surprised that it's her! She's always the most down-to-earth, level headed one on the show!

Charlie Sheen was taken to the hospital yesterday with alleged stomach pains, but apparently, that wouldn't have happened if he hadn't received assistance from his neighbors - who also happen to be The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills castmember Adrienne Maloof and her husband, Dr. Paul Nassif!

They say in a statement:

"We did receive a call from Charlie's house this morning, asking for medical assistance and advice, and immediately insisted the caller dial 911. Dr. Nassif also immediately called 911. As longtime friends, we are obviously very concerned about his well-being. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family right now and we wish him a speedy recovery."

As do we!

But we also hope that this recovery also gives him time to perhaps rethink the path he's going down, or we have a feeling that this kind of incident is going to become a fast-recurring trend.

So sad.
